On my TO DO List in 2008 I listed 'make my own stationary'. I kept meaning to sit down and make beautiful custom stationary for those rare times I actually wrote a letter on paper.
In 2009 I've decided to keep things simple and actually DO more things. So this week I launched a new blog: The 52 Letters Project The purpose is to 'revive The Letter'. It started because my niece was so delighted with an actual letter I sent to her for no official holiday or birthday. Just a letter. And aren't they nice to receive in the mail? Please visit the blog and join the fun this year! Just one letter a week!
This morning I made some stationary. Couldn't be simpler. I used pre-purchased blank cards and stamped them using my favorite chalk ink pad (VersaMagic multi-surface chalk ink pad).
The point is not that they are great art because they're not. The point is that they are done and I am using them for real notes.
Ahhh. Sometimes it's the simplest things that make me happy.
